Pluto is a 5-month-old Yorkshire puppy that was being cuddled by his pet parents friend when he jumped from their arms and screamed out when he landed!  His pet mom rushed him to ARK Veterinary Care where they diagnosed him with a fractured back leg!!  Pluto needed surgery, but his pet mom didn’t have the funding.  SAGE Compassion for Animals was contacted and we were able to fund the surgery needed to repair the fracture – and get Pluto neutered at the same time!

Remember that little puppies can be wiggly, and making sure that they are secure in your arms when holding is very important.  It is especially important to supervise children when they pick up a puppy or kitten as they can easily be dropped and severely injured!
